awaiting agents took defensive postures with ivy who was about 20-yards away. each believing the silhouette pointing the weapon was a bad guy they started firing. >> it is amazing that we have gone this many years without seeing more incidents like this. >> it is unclear who tripped the sensor that alerted the agents but it has been definitively established that no one other than the agents was at the scene when the gun fire ehe runed. >> you as a representative of these agents have concerns about is the fact there are so many new agents with a lack of experience out in the field. do you think that came into play here? >> i do. i absolutely think that came into play here. we have approximately 16,000 ground agents. of the agents the vast majority of them are five years and under. that is a very, very inexperienced workforce. >> jeffrey self, commander of customs and border protection joint field command friday night. >> if the investigation ultimately reaches that conclusion it changes none of the following facts. that agent ivy gave the ultimate sacrifice and died serving his country. that
, foreign policy and defense reporter for politico. tim, good morning. what do you expect romney to focus on in his speech at the virginia military institute on monday? >> yeah. the virginia military institute speech is going to focus primarily on foreign policy. it's going to be a big, broad speech about what he would do as commander in chief, and you can expect him to go straight to benghazi, to go straight to what he views as the president's inability to kind of take an aggressive foreign policy stance on the global stage. no doubt he is going to mention veterans, and i think he will also see him talk about his plan to raise defense spending. up to 4% of gdp, which is higher than it is even now. >> this is certainly about posturing, about sounding presidential, but how does this compare to president obama's last major foreign policy speech, the one that he maude at the united nations general assembly? >> it's going to be quite different. i mean, the president is probably more conciliatory and mitt romney is going to take a more aggressive tone towards arab states. he is going to ramp u
and individual rights and not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. because what that does, when we show -- when we look weak, our enemies are much more willing to test us. and our allies are -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? >> nothing he said is accurate. >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this is a president who has gone out and done everything he had said he was going to do. this is a guy who repaired our alliances so the rest of the world follows us again. this is a guy who brought the entire world, including russia and china to bring about the most devastating, mo

the last few years. >> reporter: and he had support. travis sharp who studies defense spending at center for new american security says the proposed cuts of tanks were a no-brainer. >> we a relatively conservative institution like the u.s. military which does not like to take risks because risks get people killed says it has enough tanks, i think generally civilians should be inclined to believe them. >> reporter: but while the defense bill isn't finished yet, you the taxpayer are still likely to be on the hook. for fixing up tanks the army doesn't want. so who decided the general was wrong? that he actually does need more tanks? i'll give you one word. congress. >> i think that there are better things that they could be doing with that $3 billion. but the fact that the military is having such a hard time getting this relatively small amount of money to be saved, i think is an indication the huge uphill fight that the military faces when it comes to congress. congress is going to fight tooth and nail to protect, defense investments that benefit their constituents and the people that live
. >> criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, cnn legal contributor. hello, ba paul. >> good morning, carol. surely the judge has heard this, do you think? >> oh, yes. the drama last night when networks were trying to figure out if this was for real or a prank. people were shocked that he would submit this to a college radio station. a lot of us were worried that this might be aa college prank but it is for real. >> how will it factor into his decision? >> he will look at a 45-count indictment and conviction. he will look at the fact that there are ten boys who were sexually abused over a 15-year period and also sandusky's background a. when this tape comes up, the context will be -- lot of times a judge will look at the defendant and say does he feel sorry for the crime he committed? has ahe committed himself to rehabilitating himself? number one he blames the judge because the trial came too fast and blames a huge conspiracy which consists of lawyers, prosecutors, psychologists to convict him of this crime. finally, and most startingly, he blames the victims, the boys who brought t
-- >> and you're going to increase the defense -- >> we're not going to cut the defense budget. they're proposing -- >> by $2 billion. >> more than that. no massive -- >> no, we're saying -- >> defense increase. >> you want to get into defense now? >> we want to work with the congress on how best to achieve this. that means successful. >> no specifics? >> what we're saying is lower tax rates 20%, start with the wealthy, work with congress to do it -- >> and you guarantee this math will add up? >> absolutely. >> wolf, at times this looked like it was a three-way debate, and it was definitely different from last week's moderating from jim. >> that's right, jim took a much more hands-off style. he let the two presential candidates go at it in that particular debate. we knew romney went at it. the president didn't go at it so much. i suspect that's going to be different in this debate. martha raddit sfwl of abc news, she got involved, and she haves much more controlling, if you will, in terms of the questioning, making sure that both had relatively the same amount of time and allowing so
. and number three, there was biden's defense of the hhs contraception mandate. >> no religious institution, catholic or otherwise, including catholic social services, georgetown hospital, mercy hospital, any hospital, none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. that is a fact. >> laura: false. today the u.s. conference of catholic bishops rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs and sterilizations because their health insurance premiums still will cover those services. now, ryan himself had some difficulty on the foreign policy questions and allowed, i think, the moderator to cut him off too easily. without a doubt, joe biden's demeanor and his mendacity made him both less likeable and less credible. and that's the memo. now on to the top st

years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think that the thing that makes people uncomfortable about him as a potential commander in chief is this sense of a lack of compass. where exactly would he lead. he doesn't seem to know that. >> the only dif
clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more important debates in american history and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and
was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and mitt romney, and then suddenly everything seems to have turned on its head. you're in a unique position because you've debated against both mitt romney and barack obama. interestingly, romney is believed from the latest polls to have won 67% to 25%. when you went head to head with obama in 2008, th
on the floor of congress and he made a very spirited defense of the obama record at the democratic convention. expect the same thing to happen here tonight. >> do you think there will be as many viewers for this vice- presidential debate as there was four years ago? >> reporter: who knows? it's unlikely given the fact that sarah palin had so much more of a, dare we say it -- wow factor politically than does ryan? but there will be a lot of interest. i was just looking at a google board. google has this tracking system. and a lot of people are look at both candidates as they travel around. you can see spikes on google in terms of the interest in ryan and especially ryan but the interest in biden has been sort of flat. so maybe people know what they need to know about him. maybe ryan is more interesting because he is new to the national political scene. we'll see how it plays out at the debate. >> we will see. live in kentucky, thank you. >>> and you can catch live coverage of the evening debate starting at 6:00 tonight on cbs 5 and cbssf.com. >>> it is 6:11 now. why a popular breakfast cereal

and defense. his plan doesn't address the rising cost of medicare, medicaid and social security. over the next ten years deficits would rise by $6.4 trillion. it's a good first step but budget experts say that's too high. mitt romney meanwhile has foc focused on the cuts. his economic plan, his plan avoids cutting from defense. mitt romney says he would pursue a balanced budge eight amendment that would require the government to spend only as much as it takes in. he said he would balance the budget by 2020, the end of his second term. mitt romney's issue is taxes. it calls to are a 250% cut to tax rates across the board. he said he would balance that out by closing loopholes and he would protect middle class families. they found it would be mathematically to lower rates without taking in more money from low and middle-income families. overall, the committee estimates mitt romney's plan would leave debt at 85% of gdp by the end of the decade. we've been telling you about the fiscal cliff, a combination of items that will take effect next year. but they won need to worry as much about the defici

later this morning is reverse some of those steep defense cuts that are part of that fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of the year. and here is one excerpt from the speech that we'll be hearing from mitt romney later on this morning. it goes after a chief theme of president obama. not only over his presidency but over his first campaign. here it is. it says, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. soledad, yesterday some of his senior foreign policy advisers had a conference call with reporters. they were sort of laying out some presidencies of past that they think mitt romney might share some of these principles with. and the presidencies that they mentioned w
nominee pledged to get tough by reversing looming defense cuts coming at the end of the year, threatening to impose possible new sanctions on iran and by looking for ways to arm the rebels in syria. romney also said he would pursue a two-state solution between the israelis and palestinians, a concept he seemed to diminish at a fund-raiser at was secretly recorded and leaked to mother jones magazine. >> i look at the palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of israel. i say, there's just no way. >> reporter: the obama campaign tried to get the jump on romney's speech, releasing a new ad, reminding voters of the republican candidate's gaffe-plagued foreign trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different a

cost jobs that threatens our national security. the secretary of defense said the cuts would be devastating. i can tell you this, when i get elected president -- we're going to make sure that we do not cut our military budget, our military must remain the strongest military in the world by a wide margin. one of the biggest differences between the two of us relates to jobs. rising take-home pay. i mean, with 23 million americans out of work and struggling to find a good job with the median income in america having gone down, last three or four years, 4,000 a family, at the same time, food prices, gas, health care cost is up. but this has been a tough time for middle income americans. the vice president said that middle incomes have been buried. he is right, against that backdrop, against that backdrop, when the president is asked what are you going to do to get people jobs? he has nothing to say, it is another stimulus, he wants to hire government workers, nothing wrong with government workers. but that is notoing to put america back to work. and then of course, he wants to ma
